I am the proud father of three daughters, and now they are reaching the pre-teen and teen age where they need to start thinking about their futures. Unlike most parents I have no agenda, and don’t want to force anything on my kids, I just want them to find a life that suits them and makes them happy. To wit, we have been talking about college a lot, because their teachers tell them they have to go to college. I explained that this is America, they don’t “have” to go to college or do anything else they don’t want to. I explained to them other options, like trade school to study HVAC repair, plumbing, or welding. They all that idea was hilarious, because no one in authority had ever told them it was okay for females to go into traditionally male dominated areas like HVAC. Once I told them that HVAC technicians go to school for 2 years instead of 4, and what their starting base pay was, then they stopped laughing. I’m glad we had that talk, because while it is important for them to go to college if they choose, they need to know that HVAC, welding, etc are all fine choices for females. We did a little research and actually found out that the heating and cooling industry has been actively seeking out females to work in the business. It is a bold new world, there are no boy jobs or girl jobs, and being an HVAC tech is a great way to put food on the table regardless of gender.
